We will all experience times in our lives when we really need someone that we can talk to, someone who will really listen, someone we can trust. Therapy is a powerful, evidence-based tool that has been proven to meet those needs. Though there is often a stigma attached to seeking support for mental health concerns, in reality, our mental health is an integral part of our overall health and wellness and, in my opinion, should be treated with the same importance as seeing a physician or a dentist. Though people seek therapy for a variety of reasons, the common theme is their hope to live happier, healthier, and more productive lives.
The key to growth is love. All that is helping, caring, sharing, restoring, forgiving is love. A psychotherapist is a conduit to change. I believe that everyone has the ability and desire to improve her or his life; to maximize the gift that is life. I seek to facilitate such development through compassionate, dynamic participation in the transformation process.

I believe my role as a therapist is to build a safe and nonjudgmental partnership to support you in connecting with your own inner wisdom and capacity for growth, healing, and transformation. I combine your expertise in your own life with my training and experience to support you as a whole person (mind, body, spirit) in the context of your intersecting identities, experiences, and environment. Curiosity and compassion are core to my work. I specialize in working with adults impacted by complex trauma, chronic stress, and/or childhood emotional neglect. I also support people who feel 'stuck,' anxious, or emotionally overwhelmed.

My aim and joy as a therapist is to understand you as an expert on your own life. In order to process the complexity of everyday living, we compartmentalize and make generalizations about our experience. Sometimes we hold on to generalizations that may have served us at one point, but no longer apply to current circumstances. I concentrate on listening, non-judgmental questioning, emotional support and holding space for your process. My collaborative approach focuses on adaptation, allowing us to apply the methods that work best, while processing and making space for what does not work.

As life progresses, we each encounter difficulties that create ripples in our lives. I aim to create a collaborative space in which to discuss the ways in which clients can experience change and feel empowered. Creating a non-judgemental space is crucial to me within the therapeutic environment, so that exploration of self can occur. I have had extensive clinical experience in identity formation, depression, coping, grief, comorbid mental health diagnoses, and anxiety. I enjoy developing a strong alliance with clients in order to facilitate a sense of growth.
Life is too short for just getting by. Don't let depression, anxiety or anything else get in the way of feeling your best.
